Once we opened the coffee shop, we felt proud because very quickly we could see that people enjoy it and love it. What I really love about coffee, is that first taste. There’s a ritual to brewing it properly and then enjoying it. Normally, as soon as I’ve finished the first cup, I want another.
What I really love about coffee is that there is no part of it, even your first sip that is unpleasant. Coffee is something that we as a nation are becoming increasingly passionate about. I believe that in a few years, good barista’s will be as revered as good chefs.
The Coffee guy
Coffee took me around the world. Seriously it did. I bought a motorcycle. I travelled the islands of New Zealand and took in as many coffee shops as I could. My tastes were massively expanded and what before was an interest and a job, transformed into a passion and a vocation.
Master of the Roast and Blend
(and the best name in the company)
I love coffee because it is a natural product that can be so different, it is always changing, and I am always chasing it. I love what I do, creating those blends, making the roast perfect, all the science, all the care. I do it to ensure that a cup of coffee from 200 Degrees is as close to perfection as you can get.
